The cable pattern on this warm and cozy toque put me in mind of “the forks” the place where the two rivers of my home, Winnipeg, converge. People have been meeting at this place for 6,000 years and it is steeped in history.
This is a great project for anyone who wants to try cables for the first time. The pattern is rhythmic and easy to memorize. The decreases at the top are worked right into the cable pattern to preserve the flow of the design.
